The definitions of Advanced Practice Nursing have continued to be developed and defined in a variety of ways over time.

Starting my clinical experience this week, I felt confident in the interview process. I knew what information I wanted to gather for my care plan. I also knew that all the information I needed would not be found in the chart. I had to gain the patient’s trust so that he or she could open up to me. Upon finding out that my patient was a transgender male, I was uncomfortable. Despite of my knowledge and my experiences in the healthcare field, I was afraid of offending the patient by referring to him as the wrong sex or the wrong name. Therefore, I said to myself “In this profession, I must be non-judgmental and put all my personal opinions aside to care for the patient”. That is when I started to feel confident in my ability to be compassionate

Let’s Explore the Nursing Process Joshua Adkins Excelsior College – NUR 104: Health and Safety Instructed by Margaret Golden Let’s Explore the Nursing Process The American Nurses Association (ANA) views the nursing process as a six-step process, however the most widely used by registered nurses (RNs) is a five-step process (Taylor, Lillis, LeMone, & Lynn, 2011). The nursing process can be described as an organized and appropriate method to explain the nursing essence, its scientific bases, technologies, and humanist assumptions. These assumptions encourage critical thinking and creativity and permits solving problems in professional practice (Hagos, Alemseged, Balcha, Berhe, & Aregay, 2014). The nursing process used today is widely
There are two different methods to evaluate a nurse’s performance, results - oriented system and behavior-oriented system. In result - oriented system, the employee knows what are expected and as Sullivan(2013, p.241)stated, the results are “quantifiable, objective, and easily measured”.

I enjoy reading your post. It contains great information about nursing information and skills needed to educate, care and promote patient care. I agree with you that nurses need to know where to information, the reasons for why the information is needed, read, evaluate it and use it. I think all three skills work hand in hand. For nurses to provide excellent care to patients, it is essential to know how the body works and when there is dysfunction, find the information about the dysfunction, interpret and understand the information, and how and when to seek further information (Patel, 2015). It would be it difficult for nurses without these skills to provide safe care for the patient. Do you think nurses will perform adequately on their
